Commemorating the Holocaust Remembrance Day, Jewish Studies Program Director, Andrea Sinn, paid tribute to the victims and the survivors of the Holocaust. Holocaust survivors, Shelly Weiner and Rachel Kizhnerman, shared their experiences of hardship and resilience as young women living through the war. Shelly and Rachel spoke of their time in hiding and the fear they felt, along with the joy that came when the war finally ended. These women shed light on the harsh experiences that so many were faced during the Holocaust, and how this has impacted the world we live in today.
